Lovers of '90s and '00s music must be in their element right now, spoiled for choice with acts jetting into the UAE. From Boyzone to Alesha Dixon, there is something for everyone. Here is where to see them and when:

There will also be music from local artists Dolce, Steph Goudie and Jaymie Deville, and Dubai 92's Rich and Tim Cheddar will also be DJing.

Boyzone at The Irish Village

Boyzone's Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating and Shane Lynch are bringing their Thank You & Goodnight tour to Dubai. The Irish foursome are set to perform at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium on Friday, April 12.

In November, Boyzone released their final album, Thank You & Goodnight, and recorded 12 new tracks, including a special tribute to late band member Stephen Gately.

On the weekend of March 29-30, the band's Keith Duffy was hospitalised in Bangkok, Thailand, and it was questioned whether or not he would continue with the tour. He has since reunited with the band.

Keith Duffy and the impressively bearded Shane Lynch were the hype-men, with a job description to shout “Come on!” when sensing any hint of crowd fatigue.
